PARK, KIM, CHUNG, KIM, SON, and JANG: Clematis pseudotubulosa (Ranunculaceae), a new species from Korea


Clematis pseudotubulosa (Ranunculaceae), a new species from Gyeonggi-do in the Republic of Korea, is described and illustrated. The new species is morphologically similar to C. takedana but differs in its leaves, which are always ternate with shallowly lobed leaflets (vs. 1-pinnate with deeply lobed three to five leaflets), and its oblong-shaped flower buds (vs. ovoid), larger flowers (vs. smaller flowers), and pantoporate pollen (vs. tricolpate). A detailed species description, geographical distribution, and an identification key for all species of Clematis that occur in Korea are also provided.


The genus Clematis L. is one of the largest genera in the buttercup family (Ranunculaceae). It consists of approximately 300 species of herbaceous or woody vines and rarely erect shrubs or perennial herbs, which are common in temperate regions, including northern Europe, Siberia, and the Far East, whereas other species occur in tropical regions (Tamura, 1955, 1967, 1987, 1995; Wang and Bartholomew, 2001; Wang and Li, 2005; Kadota, 2006; Chang 2007; Kim, 2017).
This genus consists of 18 sections based on both morphological characters such as the leaf shape, flower structure, and achenes, as well as recent molecular phylogenies (Tamura, 1967, 1987; Jensen et al., 1995; Johnson, 2001; Kim, 2003; Wang and Li, 2005; Miikeda et al., 2006; Wang et al., 2009; Xie et al., 2011; Xie and Li, 2012; Lehtonen et al., 2016; Jiang et al., 2017; Kim, 2017; Ghimire et al. 2020; Park, 2021; Park et al., 2021). Among them, members of Clematis L. sect. Tubulosae Decaisne include approximately nine species, which are mainly distributed in East Asia (Decaisne, 1881; Kitagawa, 1937; Shi, 2003; Wang and Xie, 2007); these plants have trifoliate leaves, stems without tendrils, linear calyces that are tubular in shape with recurved upper parts, 12–24 stamens, persistent styles, and ovate-shaped fruits (Decaisne, 1881; Kitagawa, 1937; Wang and Xie, 2007). On the Korean Peninsula, two species have been reported in this section (Park, 2021), of which one species, C. urticifolia Nakai ex Kitag., is endemic to the Korean Peninsula.
During a recent floristic survey, one species of Clematis was collected from areas near Lake Sihwa and Namhansanseng Fortress in Gyeonggi-do, Republic of Korea. Clematis individuals from Lake Sihwa were once reported as C. takedana Makino (Moon et al., 2013; Chung, 2018), a natural hybrid of C. apiifolia DC. (sect. Clematis) and C. stans Siebold & Zucc. (sect. Tubulosae). Its habit, phyllotaxis, and sepal shapes are similar to those of C. apiifolia, whereas the features of its reproductive organs are similar to those of C. stans, a species endemic to Japan (Makino, 1907; Kitagawa, 1937; Ohwi, 1965; Kadota, 2006; Wang and Xie, 2007; Xie and Li, 2012). However, the putative parent species C. stans is not distributed in South Korea (Kadota, 2006); hence, the taxonomic identity of the Clematis individuals from Lake Sihwa and Namhansanseng Fortress is unclear. After careful examinations of various flora and herbarium specimens from Korea and adjacent countries, we concluded that the collected specimens could be proposed as a new species with the name Clematis pseudotubulosa.


Morphological examination

We collected 34 fresh samples of C. pseudotubulosa and prepared a voucher specimen. By referring to the relevant protologues, flora, and monographs (Wang and Bartholomew, 2001; Kadota, 2006; Kim, 2017), we determined four target congeneric taxa for examination. Photographs in the field were captured using a digital camera (Nikon D3X, D7200 and Coolpix P530, Tokyo, Japan). To compare the morphological characteristics of the new species, we took loan of 132 herbarium specimens included C. tubulosa, deposited in the Korea National Arboretum (KH), Andong National University (ANH), Kangwon National University (KWNU), Kongju University (KNH), and National Institute of Biological Resources (KB) (Appendix 1). Additionally, voucher specimens image of C. takedana and C. stans deposited in the National Science Museum (TNS) and Kyoto University (KYO) were studied (Appendix 1). Measurements of the morphological characters were taken with digital Vernier calipers (CD-15APX, Sakado, Mitutoyo) and from data derived from field notes. Morphological observations of all plant parts were conducted, focusing primarily on the shapes of the leaves and floral parts, as well as the features of the reproductive organs, under an Olympus dissecting stereo microscope (SZX16, Tokyo, Japan). Microscopic floral parts such as sepals and pistils were dissected when required. Various leaf-associated characters (leaflet number and size, petiole type) and flower-related features (size and shape of the sepals, bracts, and stamens, and shape and number of carpels) were assessed (Table 1).

Pollen morphological analysis

To observe the pollen, we used mature anthers after the anthesis of C. pseudotubulosa flowers. Pollen was prepared by a slightly modified standard acetolysis method (Erdtman, 1971; Radford et al., 1974). Cut anthers were put into a 15 mL tube and an acetolysis mixture (acetic anhydride:sulfuric acid = 9:1) was added, followed by incubation in a hot water bath at 90°C for about 10 min. After 10 min of centrifugation at 1,500 rpm, the supernatant was removed and washed twice with glacial acetic acid and once each with distilled water and 30%, 50%, and 70% ethanol. The supernatant was then stored in 70% ethanol. For scanning electron microscopic observations, some acetolyzed pollen grains were sprinkled onto carbon tape attached to a slide glass and coated with gold (thickness: 200–250 Å) by ion sputtering. A scanning electron microscope (S-2500C; Hitachi, Japan; 15 kV; working distance, 35 mm) was used to observe and photograph the shape and surface of the pollen. Meanwhile, data on the pollen of C. takedana and C. stans were provided based on data reported by Wang and Xie (2007) and Xie and Li (2012).

Etymology: The specific epithet “pseudotubulosa” is derived from a combination of “pseudo” and “tubular,” because the flowers are tubular-shaped in the beginning of flowering, but they spread upon full flowering.
Vernacular name: Deong-gul-jo-hui-pul (덩굴조희풀)
English colloquial name: Creeping hyacinth-flower clematis
Phenology: Flowering August to September; fruiting September to October
Distribution: Clematis pseudotubulosa is restricted to the Korean Peninsula (South Korea, including Hwaseong-si and Gwangju-si, Gyeonggi-do) (Fig. 4).
Taxonomic note: Clematis pseudotubulosa is morphologically similar to C. takedana with regard to its habit, leaf size and shape, and flower structures (Kadota, 2006; Wang and Xie, 2007). Despite these similarities, there are clear differences between these two species, such as a tendril-like petiole, hairs on the surface of the petiole, the number of leaflets and the shape of the bracts (Figs. 2, 3, Table 1), as well as shape of the flower buds (oblong for C. pseudotubulosa vs. ovoid for C. takedana) and pollen type (pantoporate for C. pseudotubulosa vs. tricolpate for C. takedana) (Fig. 5, Table 1) (Wang and Xie, 2007). Clematis tubulosa, which is found in Korea and China, and C. stans, which is found in Japan as an endemic species, also display tendril-like petioles, ternate leaves, hairy leaflets, and pantoporate pollen (Wang and Xie, 2007; Xie and Li, 2012). However, the new species differs from them by its habit, texture of its leaves, sexuality of the flower, and from the latter by its absence of a staminode (Figs. 3, 4, Table 1). Therefore, the Korean individual that Moon et al. (2013) reported as C. takedana was misidentified. Currently, only a few C. pseudotubulosa individuals grow in the two identified habitats. The habitats are threatened by destruction due to nearby development and ongoing work to repair castle walls. Hence, there is a pressing need to protect this species.
Meanwhile, considering the habitat of C. pseudotubulosa, this species may have arisen from natural hybridization between C. apiifolia and C. tubulosa. In addition, morphologically, the petiole type, leaflet and sepal shapes, stamen trichomes, pollen type are similar to those of C. tubulosa, whereas the features of its habit, phyllotaxis, and achene shapes are similar to those of C. apiifolia.
